Revell argues passionately for the transformation that imaginative experience elicits through poetry. The art of poetry is not about the acquisition of wiles or the deployment of strategies, it's about taking the information of the senses and extrapolating it through the imagination to a wider truth. Noticing oneself noticing. Using examples both from his own poetry and tranlsations from Blake and Thoreau to Ronald Johnson and John Ashbery, Revell takes the writer out of the workshop and back into the world of vision.
